I'm just now upgrading from 10.4 to 11.2, and having a problem upgrading my user notes to the new user note format. When I attempt to upgrade notes made in 10.4.5 to the new user-note format, text is deleted from the beginning and end of every paragraph in the entire user note database, and copious weird formatting abnormalities are introduced (odd bold areas starting and stopping mid sentence, areas where font changes mid-word, some hebrew/greek text completely garbled, sections underlined in blue (as for a scripture link, but where none exist), etc).  I could spend hours to fix the formatting, but I can't repair all the deleted text.  So I had to delete the updated version of the user notes and go back to a previously saved version.  How can I update the user notes without loosing text and having bizarre formatting issues?

I just upgraded from 10.4 to version 11.2, on a MacBook Air 2014, with OSX 10.11.5.

Randy, you should be able to revert to your old notes using the 'Old User Notes' folder found in your Accordance Files.  Be sure to remove the upgraded notes from your Library first before adding in the old one again.


I can confirm this issue, it seems to be another bug related to the massive 11.2 upgrade.  We'll be sure its fixed by 11.2.1, or you could use 11.1.6 to do the conversion.


Thanks for the report!
